The Cashen Course Hole by Hole

Hole Number
1 Hole 1

Hole 1

Professional's Tip

A long hole to start your round with and only reachable in two for the longer hitters.  A drive down the left half of the fairway will give you the best view up the hole.

Probably best is to lay-up on your second, but with your pitch onto the green beware that the green is very shallow.  Make sure you take enough club to get over the front pot bunker

2 Hole 2

Hole 2

Professional's Tip

There is a big fairway to aim at off the tee which should provide no problem.

Play right of the flag for your second shot, as the ball tends to kick off the hill.

A two-tier green here so make sure you have the right yardage to get onto the correct level.

3 Hole 3

Hole 3

Professional's Tip

The first of the short holes, with clubbing depending a lot on what the wind is doing.

Beware of the small pot bunkers to the front, so aim your tee shot a little to the right. Check which level the pin is on to get the yardage correct.

4 Hole 4

Hole 4

Professional's Tip

A large fairway to aim at from an elevated tee, but beware of the fairway bunkers.

A drive down the centre is best for a clear view of the flag for your second shot.

A ball will tend to move right to left on the green, so take this into account when pitching in.

5 Hole 5

Hole 5

Professional's Tip

A 3 wood or long iron onto the fairway will leave a short iron for your second.  For the players who want to give it a go, a carry of 284 yards – slightly uphill – is required to make the front edge of the green.

The green is wide but very shallow, so your pitching has to be accurate in length to give yourself a good birdie chance.

6 Hole 6

Hole 6

Professional's Tip

You want to aim your tee shot towards the right half of the green here, as the grounds falls away from the green on the left.

A small green, so check your yardage to give you the best chance of selecting the right club.

7 Hole 7

Hole 7

Professional's Tip

A short Par 4, but can be fraught with danger.  A drive up the middle of around 200 yards will leave a short iron in, but don’t drift right as you might end up having to chip out of the deep dip off the right side of the fairway.

A long green, so once again check your yardage to get the right club.

8 Hole 8

Hole 8

Professional's Tip

A long Par 5, but where good players can cut the corner and get their drive down to the bottom of the hill.  Everybody else should aim their drive towards the white stone on the mound with a slight draw, which could still get the ball running down the hill.

For your shot into the green remember that there is quite a rise up to the green, so take enough Club to reach the putting surface

9 Hole 9

Hole 9

Professional's Tip

A Par 5 for the Men but a Par 4 for the ladies and a good birdie chance for both.

A drive straight down the middle will leave an easy second shot, but make sure you know which level the pin is on to give yourself the best chance of an eagle or birdie putt.

Once again, take into account the slight rise up to the front edge of the green.

10 Hole 10

Hole 10

Professional's Tip

A short but tricky par 4.  A fairway wood or long iron shot of about 180-200 yards would be best off the tee to the visible part of the fairway.

Wind plays a factor here so take that into account when playing your second.

11 Hole 11

Hole 11

Professional's Tip

Often played into a right to left wind which you should use to bring the ball back to the middle of the green.

Make sure you take enough club, as the wind can often knock the ball down short.

12 Hole 12

Hole 12

Professional's Tip

An uphill Par 3, so determine your yardage and be sure you use enough club – possibly one more than you first thought of.

A two-tier green which can sometimes make putting a bit tricky.

13 Hole 13

Hole 13

Professional's Tip

There is danger on the right off the tee, so keeping your drive in the middle or slightly left of middle is the right shot.

A short to mid-iron will be needed for your second, with the only trouble being a grass bunker short right of the green.

14 Hole 14

Hole 14

Professional's Tip

There is trouble both left and right off the tee, so keep your drive as straight as possible.

This green has a big dip in the middle which can lead to some interesting putts.  If the pin is at the back you will need to check your yardage to ensure you take enough club to reach the rear level.

15 Hole 15

Hole 15

Professional's Tip

A beautiful, winding Par 5 that isn’t very long but needs straight hitting to make your score.  Don’t go left off the tee otherwise you will be blocked out by a huge mound.

It’s probably best to lay up with your second shot and trust your pitching skills.  Note that the green is elevated quite a bit above the fairway, so you will need to take that into account when choosing your club.

16 Hole 16

Hole 16

Professional's Tip

The last of the Par 3’s but very pretty running parallel to the beach.

Off the tee there is trouble both left and long, so keep your tee shot to the right side of the green.  The green is slightly banked at the back so this will help your ball on.

A definite birdie chance.

17 Hole 17

Hole 17

Professional's Tip

A short Par 5 but with a spectacular shot into the green.

A good drive down the middle and a lay up for your second is the best way to play this hole.

There is a small ridge in the green so if the pin is at the back you will need to get over that to give you an easier birdie putt.

18 Hole 18

Hole 18

Professional's Tip

A drive over the dip to a generous fairway, but play right of centre for the best view into the green.

Note that the hole rises all the way up to the green, particularly the last slope up just short of the two front green bunkers.  Also the green has three tiers, so make sure you take enough Club to reach the right part of the green
